The architect Eilfried Huth is known for his pioneering and visionary, large-scale, participatory housing projects. His reflections on the concept of “dwelling” run parallel to grander utopic ideas and visions, yet, his architectural models always focus on the needs and desires of future inhabitants. Huth coined the term “variety,” a concept for large-scale housing projects that allows for a maximum of flexibility in a cohesive over all design.
“trigon 67” provided the possibility to rethink the medium of the exhibition. In 1967, Huth—in collaboration with the architect Günther Domenig—designed the entrance to the exhibition at the Künstlerhaus. For the 50th anniversary, Huth has again created a large and utopic entry situation.
Together, architect Eilfried Huth, Monika Holzer-Kernbichler (Head of Public Programs, Kunsthaus), and Jürgen Dehm (Curator, Künstlerhaus), will discuss Huth’s work and ideas in the past, present, and future.
